Medical Grade Computers For Emergency Room Use

Medical Computers For Emergency Room Use

In 2016, U.S. emergency rooms treated 145.6 million Americans for their emergency conditions according to the Center for Disease Control. This number has been steadily rising since the 1990s, and can be expected to continue increasing with each passing year. With such a high demand for emergency services, it is important to keep your hospital’s emergency room as up to date as possible. With the latest medical computers at your physician’s side, emergency room wait times can drastically decrease and patients can get the life-saving care they need.

The Medix line of medical computers from Tangent are some of the most valuable assets that an emergency room can contain. With a wide touchscreen, busy emergency room personnel can quickly input a patient’s data and get right to helping them. Unlike other computers, the Medix E22B does not quit. With hot-swap battery technology, the Medix E22B can be safely unplugged from a wall outlet and still operate normally. In an emergency situation, the last thing you want to be worrying about is how to transfer medical data around with a patient. The Meddix E22B allows doctors to unplug their medical computer and follow their patient with the same data they admitted them with.

The Medix T24B from Tangent features the same hot-swap battery technology as the Medix E22b, also with three built in slots for batteries. This allows the Medix T24B to not only access the power of three batteries at once, but continuously run 24/7 without being plugged in. The Medix T24B is perfect for medical carts that are constantly in demand and cannot afford to be put out of commission for charging. With 6th generation Intel processors, this medical computer is as fast as it is reliable and can handle any medical program thrown at it.

As hospital emergency rooms become increasingly more crowded, every square inch of space will become ever more valuable. That’s why smaller medical computers such as the Medix KW 15 are a vital tool for any emergency room. While examination and surgery rooms can afford the luxury of a widescreen medical computer, the same may not be true for emergency rooms. The Medix KW 15 features all the power of a traditional medical computer but in a sleeker, smaller package. This allows doctors more space to treat patients, while still maintaining the computational power needed to do their job to the fullest. 

Reduce Emergency Room Times With Medical Computers

With emergency room wait times only expected to rise, the time to plan for a crowded emergency waiting room is now. Medical computers from Tangent can help reduce wait times, improve emergency room computing power, and help those truly in need of help.

Medical Computers Are Safer Than Traditional Computers In The Hospital

Dangerous Bacteria In Hospitals

When we discuss the prevention of nosocomial infections in the hospital—clostridium difficile (C. diff), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureu (MRSA), Escherichia coli (E. Coli)— it is important to note all the various ways these diseases are transmitted. From one medical exam room to the next, medical staff carry such diseases across the hospital. It’s already well known that medical staff need to clean the mice and keyboards of their medical computers regularly in order to kill these diseases, however this may not be enough. 

 

In addition to these diseases resisting most traditional cleaning agents, a recent preprint of a Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine paper suggests even the mousepads of medical computers harbor these dangerous bacteria. This calls into question the efficacy of traditional medical computers in general, with every peripheral potentially enabling life threatening diseases. All-in-one medical computers offer a promising solution, eliminating the need for disease carrying peripherals while operating above the level of traditional medical computers.

 

All-In-One Medical Computers: No Dirty Accessories

All-in-one medical computers differ from traditional medical computers in a number of ways, but most notably in their ability to operate without a mouse, keyboard, or mousepad; everything one needs to operate an all-in-one medical computer is localized in the actual medical computer. 

 

All-in-one medical computers feature antimicrobial touchscreens, allowing medical staff to fully utilize their medical computer without the use of a keyboard or mouse. Without these accessories, all-in-one medical computers negate the rampant growth of harmful bacteria and require less cleaning. In addition, all-in-one medical computers come with a durable antimicrobial coat to counter the potential spread of such bacteria. This coating mitigates the growth of bacteria that is transferred to the all-in-one medical computer instead of simply letting the bacteria fester and grow. With an antimicrobial coating, all-in-one medical computers are far more cleaner than their traditional counterparts while also being easier to use.

 

Easier Than Ever

All-in-one medical computers are not only safer than traditional medical computers, they are also easier to use. It may seem counterintuitive that a medical computer without a mouse, keyboard, or mousepad would be easier to interact with but in reality using all-in-one medical computers is a lot like using your own personal phone. Tasks such as scrolling, clicking, and locating information on digital medical charts becomes far less tenuous and nearly second nature. All-in-one medical computers are as easy to use as they are safe, and allow your medical staff to focus solely on their patient’s well being instead of whether their interactions are causing said patient to become more ill.

 

All-In-One Medical Computers: Safe And Easy

With new information coming out every month showcasing how common hospital items can actually harbor dangerous bacteria, staying up to date is more important than ever to mitigate nosocomial infections. All-in-one medical computers offer a compelling solution to the problem of computer accessories harboring such bacteria, eliminating bacteria growth and making the job of medical staff far easier.
